This restaurant was a real treat. The food, from starters to desserts, were excellent. Considering the portion size, it was very filling, in a satisfying way. I was also very impressed by the service, we didn't have to wait long at all for the courses. This was a high class meal and with the price to match, so don't go... More

We came here for Sunday lunch with extremely high expectations, which were further stoked by our waiter reminding us of the Michelin star. And things started extremely well with a slice of magical crab tart, quite the best and crabbiest crab tart we've ever tasted. But then things slightly went downhill. Our chateaubriand was perfectly cooked and reasonably flavoursome but... More

Ate here for a friends birthday. The food is out of this world. Stunning dishes that change every day. I loved the relaxed atmosphere and staff. Have to go again as soon as we can!

We absolutely loved this place! Proprietors and team made us feel like it was a second home. We timed our visit to enjoy the Seasonal Tasting menu - which was incredible - but even our "off the normal menu" breakfast the next morning featuring local items, was incredible. We will definitely be back. It was a very short, easy trip... More

For a very special occasion 10 of us dined here over 2 nights & I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The dinner service was a relaxed style for the formal dining room which was very welcoming (I've dined at quite a few places where the service has been over formal for the style of restaurant / group). The staff were very... More

We ate and stayed here for a night away. The room was lovely and very beautifully decorated although it would have been great to have a guide as to what Nespresso pods they had as we had no idea (we don't have one at home) and we also couldn't work out how to get music on the tv/radio/media outfit they...

Our room had French doors to decking and table & chairs beside the river set in the countryside magical. Dinner was also a gastronomic experience unusual & challenging dishes with attentive service.
